The name Elle Furlong probably does not mean much to you. She is a resident of Florida (that alone speaks volumes) and recently gained my ire when she linked to a headline stating that courts “quietly” ruled that vaccines or a vaccine preservative called MMR is the cause of autism. Yes, this is going to get very ugly. Continue Reading
Attempts to explain the laws by which the universe operates and functions. Science is a wonderful thing that has brought us so many benefits. If the post has anything to do with that subject, it will be filed in this category.
Before I get to the meat of the matter, I want to tell you about one of my favourite authors, George Orwell. Or Eric Arthur Blair as he was known to people around his home. Eric‘s biggest talent other than creating stories that were equally frustrating and compelling to read was writing about the cause-effect between how people behave and what they are taught to believe about themselves.

Ever sat up for hours at night with a feeling like your mouth is filled with vomit and the skin around your lips has become encrusted shit? That is basically the feeling I get when I lie in bed at night with a blood sugar even slightly to the North of 10.0 mmol/l. Continue Reading
